Hey guys, does anyone know i there are any books, or what have you, that might explain all of the various types fusible products on the market, as well as how and (more importantly, IMO) WHY they might be used or preferred over another item. The bewildering array is, well....bewildering! There are even products that one can iron on to the wrong side of an item and stitch is into a project to give it depth and structure, IIRC.

Both Wonder Under regular and Heat and Bond Lite can be stitched through. The heavier weights will gum your needle and are used for bonding only projects. The big difference between the two is that Wonder Under can be heated at a higher temperature, and thus can be used for things like a cotton applique. The Heat and Bond requires a lower temperature and time, and that is best used for synthetics or fabrics that can only tolerate a lower temperature.

I got the Stabilzer Guide book from Nancy's Notions a few yrs back. I dont know if it's been updated. I use it as a reference but so many more products have come on market- before we had one wash-away type and now we have many.
I wish there was a stabilizer book that was like the More Fabric Savvy Book- where everything was in one place.
That would be great reference. I hate spending hours on the Internet wading through tutorials, videos and forums. It takes forever and I often get sidetracked.
